* April 8 -- An employee of the Fast Point gas station reported there were two females "huffing duster" while they were parked at the gas pumps around 2:10-2:15 a.m. Police responded and spoke to the suspects, who both denied the allegation. But the police report states there was a cold can of duster located under the passenger seat and they contacted the station owner about obtaining a copy of their surveillance video. The case remains active. LPD Officer Debbie McDonald was the investigating officer. Cpl. Paul F. Clark II provided assistance on the scene.

* April 8 -- A woman who was released from the Greene County Jail signed a no-contact order that she was not to contact a specific male but at approximately 7:20 p.m. he received a text from her. However, the text had no message and he was told to contact the officer if he received another text -- the first one might have been an accident. LPD Officer Debbie McDonald was the investigating officer.

* April 9 -- Police received a call from Monroe County about a suspect who was wanted on a warrant issued for an alleged home detention violation. The suspect was serving time on a conviction for possession of a controlled substance. The suspect, a 31-year-old male from Plummer, was located at the hospital and transported to Monroe County. LPD Cpl. Paul Clark was the investigating officer who was assisted by LPD Officer Debbie McDonald.

* April 10 -- Police responded to a residence on SE I St. at approximately 9 p.m. about a report of an alleged battery. A male and a female had apparently gotten into a verbal argument which escalated. The male said the woman pushed him and slapped him in the face but the woman said she did not. Two other witnesses who were present on the scene stated that the suspect did not slap or push the man and police reported they saw no signs of injury or a complaint of pain from the man. The police report states no paperwork regarding the incident will be forwarded to the Prosecutor's Office due to insufficient evidence. LPD Cpl. Chad E. Crynes was the investigating officer.

* April 11 -- A resident reported the theft of an Ibanez V Series acoustic/electric guitar from a friend's residence on NE E St. The police report says the sons of the reporting party were at the residence with the guitar then left for awhile and when they returned the guitar was gone. LPD Officer Karl Jacobshagen was the investigating officer.

* April 11 -- Police were called to an accident involving two vehicles on State Road 54 at the entrance to Angell's Shopping Center around 6:45 p.m. One driver was westbound approaching the intersection and stopped at the red light but then another vehicle rear-ended her vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle said he could not get stopped in time to avoid the collision. Both drivers were wearing seatbelts and no injuries were reported. LPD Cpl. Chad Crynes was the investigating officer.

* April 11 -- A resident reported the theft of a set of four rims and new tires taken from his garage located on NE 7th St. sometime between April 4-11. The items fit a 2011 Polaris Ranger ATV and were valued around $1,000. LPD Reserve Officer Wayman J.R. Blazier is the investigating officer.
